JANET STONE

Janet Stone’s first musical exploration was at age four, when she would sing “Row, row, row your boat” repetitively, at increasingly higher keys, to her parents’ chagrin. She gained much of her musical education at Grace Episcopal Church in Madison, Wisconsin before earning her Bachelors of Music degree at Coe College. Now in Boston, Janet is a staff singer at Trinity Church, Copley Square, where she has been soloist for multiple services and concerts. Most recent of these were performances of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor, G.F. Handel’s Messiah, and Benjamin Britten’s The Company of Heaven. This May, she will be a featured soloist in W.A. Mozart’s Requiem at Trinity. Janet also sings with multiple professional ensembles, including Skylark Ensemble, Handel & Haydn Society, and The Bach Project. Recording credits include the Grammy nominated Seven Words from the Cross with Skylark Ensemble. Janet enjoys working with composers, and has premiered works by Patricia Van Ness, Elena Ruehr, Adam Jacob Simon, and Nell Shaw Cohen. When she’s not singing, Janet is training to be a professional cat lady. You can follow her feline friend on Instagram @obiewancatnobi.
